Front Cover
0 Reviews
Blackmur analyses the causes, processes and the effects of two of the most bitter strikes in Australia's history - the Meat Industry Strike in 1946 and the Railways Strike in 1948. He examines the people and the politics. He asks why a longstanding Labor government should take on two major unions, and do so with extraordinary ferocity.
